Santa Cruz x Taka Hayashi x Vans Pro ArcAd Pack
Release: 28 October 2017

Whoever dreamed up the collaborative partnership between Vans, Santa Cruz and Taka Hayashi deserves a pay rise. The design was conceived by the Japanese artist to pay tribute to the decades of skateboarding heritage notched up by Santa Cruz.

Both the Old Skool Pro ArcAd and the Chukka Pro ArcAd have been decked out in premium materials, emblazoned with memorable motifs, including the slogan that every 14-year-old skater has etched on their grip tape: ‘skateboarding is not a crime.’ The premium offering will be limited to 600 pairs of each silhouette worldwide, so if you’re looking to take these heritage-inspired sneakers for a walk down memory lane, then you’d best be willing to get up early.
